A Conversation for Squonks - Mythical Animals

Sqonks in literature

Post 1


Such a ludicrous name for such a sadly beautiful creature! Something similar to the squonk appears in Michael Ende's Neverending Story - they are creatures called Acharis who are so hideously ugly that they live underground in darkness to hide their ugliness from themselves and others, and they weep continuously because of it. Their tears are so salty that they wash silver from the earth which they use to create wonderful silver filigree structures. By creating beauty, they hope to atone for their ugliness.

Thank you very much! smiley - smiley I wasn't aware of the Acharis, which certainly seem to be related to Squonks.
